Luke 4:16 He went to Nazareth, where He had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day He went into the Synagogue, as was His custom.”

Early in His Ministry, Jesus returned to His home town of Nazareth.  There,  He practiced the Ministry of Staying Put.  Many of us rail at that Ministry, for we’d rather be used in the far-flung reaches of the world than to be utilized by God in the place we were born and raised.  Just this past Sunday in Church I heard of an opportunity to go on a short-term mission to Guatemala to work in an orphanage of shunned and outcast children with handicaps and congenital defects…and my heart went out to them and their suffering.  Does this mean I will go?  That’s entirely up to the Lord, and I leave it in His hands.  For my mission may be to remain where I am, touching the people around me… in the town where I was born and raised.
